I have 512mB of memory that I need to put into my computer (when I find out how to open it :))
Is it just a matter of putting the memory in the right slot or do I need to do anything else please??
the memory I have says
System 512MB 184-PINN DIMM 64x64 DDR PC3200 UNBUFF
thanks

May I suggest that bonk is only partially correct. You SHOULD turn off the computer. You SHOULD NOT unplug it. The reason being that when you unplug the computer you remove the ground connection to your electrical system. You need that to properly keep a static electricity discharge path. And I assume that you already are aware that the memory you install should be the same type/speed (184-PIN DIMM 64x64 DDR PC3200 UNBUFF) as the memory already installed. Make sure that it is completely seated and the retaining snaps are fully in place on each end of the slot.
